Uncooked pressed cheese, ripened for 8 weeks minimum, during which time it develops is smooth and aromatic character with a very inviting slight tartness on the palate that will keep you coming back for one more piece. Flavourful and creamy, the Hirschberger is a perfect tasting cheese at any time of day, or as a snack when returning from a hike in the mountains. In fact, it takes its name from a summit in Bavaria, rising 1670 m above the Tegernsee and famous for its beautiful hiking trails. The Hirschberger was also honoured with the silver medal at the 2018-2019 World Cheese Awards. The alpine region of Tegernsee forms an enchanting land with sparkling lakes and the soil is rich and produces high-quality grass with exceptional floral diversity. There a handful of farmers came together in 2007 to form the cooperative Naturkäserei Tegernseer Land. Their shared goal: to promote local and sustainable agriculture. To achieve this, the cooperative works with 20 farmers located within 15 km of the cheese dairy, and providing only high-quality fresh milk from hay-fed cows (TSG).
